Your Next Step to Becoming an International Youth Fitness and Sport Training Authority

Increased Opportunity, Enhanced Knowledge and Improved Credibility

“I would suggest that one of the greatest decisions I have made in my life was to take the Youth Fitness Certification course that you offer”
Bob Acton

As an IYCA Certified Professional, you have already exposed yourself to the IYCA’s message, methodology and system.
You’re one of  over 5000 IYCA Certified Professionals worldwide leading the charge working with young athletes and youth fitness participants.

And while 5000 is a big number, it doesn’t begin to meet the demand of the fastest growing segment of the fitness industry.

There are over 1 million young athletes, children and teenagers who hired a Personal Trainer in the United States last year.

1 million.

And as an IYCA Youth Fitness Specialist, you are equipped to serve that ever-growing market that is thirsting for the coaching that you can provide.

But now, you have a chance to access advanced youth fitness and sports performance knowledge and skills that will catapult you into the top echelon of trainers and coaches worldwide.

The Youth Fitness Specialist Level One certification (YFS) gave you the skills to coach the fundamental and most crucial components of the IYCA system.

The Youth Fitness Specialist Level Two will give you the skills and knowledge to ascend to the top 1% of coaches working with young athletes worldwide.

Right now you have the opportunity to become part of a select group.

” …I’ve won championships as an athlete and as a coach. I’ve worked on dozens of movies including ‘John Q’ with Denzel Washington. But I will tell you straight out, that the most accomplished I have ever felt is when I finished writing the IYCA certification. It is literally the greatest thing I have ever done…”

The IYCA – New, Ambitious and Already Considered an Industry Leader

“Just wanted to say Developmental Essentials is an awesome text. Don’t know why I waited so long. I have my MS, PES, CSCS, and HFI. The IYCA would have been my first step had it been around”

Brian Atkinson

Mandatory Background Check

Our highest priority, alongside providing a healthier lifestyle for our youth, is their safety. Therefore we feel in order to maintain an environment with the highest level of security, we must maintain certain standards for our applicants and members. For this reason, we require that a criminal background check be performed by our third party screening organization.

If you already hold an IYCA certification and have undergone a background screening from us, you do not need a new one for subsequent certifications.

After you purchase your exam, you will be sent an email with links to complete consent to the Background Screen. There are fees associated with the screening, depending on your country. If you are in the United States, there are no additional fees (the IYCA will cover those fees). Please be aware that if you live outside the US, additional screening fees apply (click here for international screening fees).

I sincerely hope you continue moving up the IYCA Educational ladder.

For yourself and millions of children and teenagers worldwide in need of qualified guidance.

There has never been a greater need for your services or more opportunity for your career.

We are developing the champions of tomorrow…

… And we want to continue doing that with you.
